First look : Qimonda/Aeneon PC12800U-C9
With all the rumors (facts ?) that Qimonda is on the verge of banckrupcy, one could almost forget that they still make memory :)
Actually, Qimonda was one of the first to introduce their Core i7 specific memory modules, and one of the first to introduce them at speeds up to 1600Mhz. Have a look at the package that came in:
The memory modules themselves look rather basic, but they're's nothing wrong with that. The heatspreader design looks and feels very pleasing. We're talking a cas 9 set here, which theoretically makes them a little slower than the Geil modules from our previous post. Qimonda has a different manufacturing process though, so testing will have to make out if they can be competitive - or not.
Overclocking wise, it's clear that these cas 9 modules are not scaling as well as the Geil's, have a look :
Cas 7 : 7-7-7-24-1T @ 680Mhz
Cas 8 : 8-8-8-24-1T @ 760Mhz
Cas 9 : 9-9-9-27-1T @ 840Mhz
Still decent gains (remember : we're testing command rate 1 here !) over stock speeds, so all-in-all not a bad performer at all.
